- Writer, Director

Joshua Koske is an American born writer, director, and producer. A descendent of Polish-Jews and Irish-Atheists, Storyteller’s blood runs through his veins and he has been obsessed with cinema since first seeing The Princess Bride at age 5. (Fun fact, he has now seen an over-estimated 10 million times).

Originally moving to her to play rugby, Joshua has now made Australia his permanent home. While his main focus is on feature and television, he has and written, directed, and produced short films and web series. Most recently, his work includes working with Triptych Pictures on a feature adaption of the Australian Novel House of Sighs and developing an original anthology project called Cut to Care about the universal cost of caring for others. Both have received development funding through Screen Canberra and Screen ACT.

Joshua attended university in Colorado, before continuing his education in Berkeley California. He holds a Psychology degree, which is EXACTLY what a crazy person should have. By day, Joshua has worked across the community sector. This has included foster care, aged care, mental health, LGBTIQ support, domestic violence support, homelessness assistance and creating and running volunteer programs for those most vulnerable. The elderly. The isolated. Those who have no voice or just need the opportunity to have theirs heard. For Joshua, this is the true purpose of story what makes it so powerful. People deserve to be heard and to be seen. To look at the screen and know they are never alone.
